I am writing to let you know that I am alive and well. How
are you doing without me? :) The MTC is a pretty crazy experience. I am not
going to lie, I was really scared out of my pants to be here. And guess what?
On my arrival I was told that I am to be learning Spanish! It is pretty
overwhelming. Alright I am just kidding about the Spanish thing, but I am
learning about the Gospel a ton! I never thought that I could grow so
much as a person in 4 days. I don't have much time to write you but I would
like to share a few things. First thing is that my companion is awesome! His
name is Elder LaVecchia and he is from Littleton Colorado. It took us a couple
days to get to know each other but now I don't know what I would do without
him. Also, I have one of the greatest districts in the whole world! We have
grown so close together in the short time we have been here. I don't think that
we can get any closer, but I know that as the weeks go on that we will keep
growing as Elders and Brothers in the gospel. I just have to say that being at
the MTC is an amazing experience. I haven't seen so many Mormons in my whole
life! And yes Elder Leavitt was my escort. I have run into him multiple times
throughout the past few days. Also, Elder Rios is in my Zone!!! He is actually
one door down in our Residence Hall. I have a few pictures that I will be
attaching of us. I know that this email is a little jumbled and I am sorry.
There is just so much that I want to tell you. And also, the food isn't half
bad. And I wish that I
would've done laundry more cause I was kind of confused when I came to do
laundry. I love being a momma's boy but it has its downsides. Well, I need to
hurry cause people are waiting for the computer. But a couple of favors. One,
could you PLEASE send me snacks?? I am hungry. Two, I am allowed to have a
hoodie on P-Days and I am freezing my butt off. I love you very much and feel
free to send this to anyone you want to. I am so grateful to have such a loving
family and parents who have raised me in the gospel. I am writing paper letters
so don't worry I will write more. Love you guys!
